How to load a component both in Authenticated and Unauthenticated state?

How can I arrange my routes to load a component page both in authenticated and unathenticated state? Then it shows the sidebar in authenticated state only.

Hi @Script. I'm kapa.ai, your friendly support bot. I will try to answer your question by searching through the knowledge base. :wave: ---------------------- To load a component in both authenticated and unauthenticated states, you can use the <Authenticated /> component from Refine. This component uses the useIsAuthenticated hook internally to handle the authentication status and render the appropriate elements. Here's a basic usage example:
import { Authenticated } from "@refinedev/core";

const MyPage = () => (
<Authenticated>
<YourComponent />
</Authenticated>
);
import { Authenticated } from "@refinedev/core";

const MyPage = () => (
<Authenticated>
<YourComponent />
</Authenticated>
);
In this example, <YourComponent /> will be rendered if the user is authenticated. If the user is not authenticated, the component specified in the fallback prop of <Authenticated /> will be rendered. If no fallback prop is provided, it will redirect to the data.redirectTo page. To show the sidebar only in the authenticated state, you can conditionally render it based on the authentication status. You can use the useIsAuthenticated hook to get the authentication status and render the sidebar accordingly. For optional authentication, where some pages in your app are public and don't require authentication and some pages are private and require authentication, you can modify your authProvider implementation's check method. You can pass authentication: false and redirectTo: undefined to indicate that the current user is not authenticated but you don't want to redirect them to the login page. Here's an example:
import { AuthBindings } from "@refinedev/core";

export const authProvider: AuthBindings = {
check: async () => {
const isAuthenticated = await yourMethodToCheckIfUserIsAuthenticated();

return {
authentication: isAuthenticated,
// notice that we omit the `redirectTo` property
};
},
// ...
};
import { AuthBindings } from "@refinedev/core";

export const authProvider: AuthBindings = {
check: async () => {
const isAuthenticated = await yourMethodToCheckIfUserIsAuthenticated();

return {
authentication: isAuthenticated,
// notice that we omit the `redirectTo` property
};
},
// ...
};
In this example, yourMethodToCheckIfUserIsAuthenticated should be replaced with your actual method to check if the user is authenticated. For more information, you can refer to the Refine documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/authentication/components/authenticated/). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------
